The world should've listened to us carefully: WHO chief

Apr 28, 2020 09:59 IST

The WHO chief has defended the UN health body's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. He said that the UN body advised the world to implement a comprehensive public health approach and go for testing, isolation, and do contact tracing. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said countries should have listened to the agency after it declared a "Public Health Emergency of International Concern" on 30 January, when there were 82 cases outside China and no deaths, the BBC reported on Monday. "The world should have listened to WHO then, carefully," he added.
